  • This museum has many beautiful artifacs and paintings to view of many periods in Cuban history and elsewhere. 
  • wonderful visit to a collection of the most heterogeneous of Havana, paintings from the colonial period to the present day, all ages very well organized for times where you can really get an idea of how the Cuban people throughout history, and especially throughout the 20TH century has evolved

  • Gigantic museum with the best of Cuban art. I mostly enjoy the retrospectives of contemporary Cuban artists. Must do while in Havana.
  • Excellent collection
  • You should be proud of this museum. Most of the countries in Latin America have no cultural life at all. Great Work.
  • Half of the 3rd floor is pretty boring but the other half, as well as most of the 2nd floor, has some great works.
  • The modern section is located directly behind the Museum of the revolution, in a beautiful building from the 50 's of the last century. Interesting collection of Cuban artists between XIX and XX century
